I'd appreciate it if you spread the word to anyone who might be interested in printmaking, artists giving a peek behind the curtain, or just fans of giant gingers bumping gums in a semi-coherent manner.
Here's the first episode of a new ongoing feature here, where I try to explain one of my prints in a few minutes or less. This week's subject: "Fiery & Snuffy."
Long story short, I've had the idea kicking around in my head that since I can't be hanging around a venue, explaining my artwork for a month solid, I could do short videos that people could watch on their phones while looking at my art. So, from here on out, if you see one of my pieces of artwork on a wall somewhere, you'll also see a QR Code that you can scan that will take you to a YouTube video, much like the one above.
This technological marvel will first be in action at a show I'm hanging in White Center, WA, at the Southgate Roller Rink. I'm hanging the show tomorrow, I'm not sure exactly what the details are, but I'll post 'em here as soon as I figure things out.
Other than that, I'll be posting these videos here on a weekly basis, a sort of micro video podcast thingy, until I run out of work and have to start getting things done again. But I did put together ten of them so far, so there will be at least that many to deal with.
One of the things that I really appreciate about Craig Ferguson's talk show is that, every so often, one of his interviews transcends comedy and the project promotion machine and ventures into something far more fascinating and insightful. Here's an interview with author Anna Quindlen from last week:
Hope you made it past the duck porn part, it's totally worth it.
Even though CM Punk likely lost at WrestleMania yesterday to the Undertaker (scheduling posts ahead of time is awesome), he's still my favorite wrestler. So here's a sketch card I drew of him:
Punk has been my favorite for years, since I first saw him wrestle in Ring of Honor. When you start watching a wrestler on the indies, it's kind of like being able to follow an athlete's career from the minor leagues or high school all the way up to the top of their sport. Punk is the first wrestler that I got to follow from that level (him and Samoa Joe), and it's been a lot of fun watching how great he's done over the years.
